The governor of Edo state, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has reunited with his predecessor, Mr Adams Oshiomole.
The two exchanged pleasantries with each other, and Mr Oshiomole, said they were both sons of Edo State with the interest of the state at heart.
Mr Oshiomhole, who was a guest at an event, praised his successor, and described him as “his brother and friend”.
The two strong political allies whose relationship however turned sour in the build-up to the Edo 2020 gubernatorial elections, reunited in Auchi, Edo State, at the Centenary Birthday Thanksgiving of Thomas Oleghe and 18th Canonical Erection Anniversary of the Diocese of Auchi.
Mr Obaseki also noted that he has no personal grudges against the former chairman of the All Progressives Congress, but only disliked his style of politics, a statement from the governor’s office showed.
According to Mr Obaseki: “I may not like his politics, but he has not done anything personal against me. We all are interacting with the interest of the country and the development of our community at heart.”
On his part, Oshiomhole, who was a guest at the event, praised his successor, and described him as “his brother and friend”.
He said, “Once the governor speaks, the matter ends. The governor knows that pensioners here might not be able to do much, that is why he said every other thing required to complete the hostel of the Catholic School of Nursing and Midwifery in Uzairue, his government will do.”
The Governor who was denied the privilege to run for a second term in office under the platform of the All Progressive Congress, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party and defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the APC candidate and the anointed candidate of Oshiomhole and Bola Tinubu in the 2020 Edo State Governorship Election.
